Southern Utah Museum of Art

Welcome to SUMA

The Southern Utah Museum of Art, on the campus of Southern Utah University, features the artwork of regional artists known for their landscapes, faculty and student artists from the SUU Department of Art & Design, as well as emerging and distinguished artists from around the country. Strengths of the nearly 2,000-object permanent collection include the body of work by Jimmie F. Jones that exemplifies his notable career in the region, as well as a robust collection of prints featuring well-known artists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Salvador Dalí, Katsushika Hokusai, Thomas Hart Benton, and others. Part of the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Center for the Arts, which also includes the Utah Shakespeare Festival, SUMA is free and open to the public.

COVID-19 Update

Starting Thursday, March 19, SUMA will be temporarily closed to the public until further notice.

All programs, both on- and off-site, planned through April 24 have been canceled or postponed.

During this time, we will be sharing the work of SUU students featured in the 2020 Senior BFA Exhibition and Our Natural World through our Facebook and Instagram.

We will continue to monitor the guidelines issued by the CDC, SUU, and the State of Utah. We will evaluate our decision regularly and may further adjust our response as the situation develops. SUMA will communicate updates to its operating hours and programming through email, social media and our website. 

SUMA appreciates your patience and cooperation during this time. Please contact the museum with any further questions by emailing
